Passing of the Peace

Moments with Young Christians

Prayer of Confession
God, forgive us for forgetting that you are always coming toward us. You are drawing near, like a king on a donkey. Help us find you in our midst. Creator God, forgive us for the moments when we choose greed over generosity, or when we choose our self-image over our loyalty to you. Give us the courage to be unabashed in our faith. Give us the strength to throw our coats on the road. Son of David, give us the conviction to shout your name from the rooftop. Give us the wisdom to sing, “Hosanna!” With hope in our hearts, we pray to you, Jesus, Amen.

No Greater Love by Lloyd Larson, Orchestration by Ed Hogan - Unity Choir, Ryan Harrison, director

Sing Hosanna to the King!

Remember Me

Alone in the Garden He Prays

Betrayed, Rejected, Condemned

Surely He has Borne Our Griefs

There is No Greater Love

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name (arr. Winkler)
